Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool reached yet another milestone on Thursday night as they came from a goal down to beat Newcastle 3-1.

It was the Reds’ 2,000th top-flight win in the club’s history, making them the first English club to reach such a milestone.

It came in their 4,227th such match, with 1,047 draws and 1,180 defeats.

Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah ensured Liverpool led 2-1 at the break at Anfield after Jonjo Shelvey had given the visitors the lead with a beautiful strike inside the opening 10 minutes.

Trent Alexander-Arnold then scored a screamer late on to wrap up the win, which ensured they kept pace with leaders Manchester City.

Coach Jurgen Klopp also reached another milestone; recording his 150th league win since taking charge of the club in October 2015.

Klopp managed this in 12 games fewer than any of his predecessors in the dugout, bettering Sir Kenny Dalglish, who got to the mark in 2011.

Salah could not be left behind either as his goal meant he has now scored or assisted a goal in each of his last 15 Premier League appearances and thereby equalling the record set by Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy in 2015.

Salah is the first Red to net in five successive Anfield league meetings with Newcastle.
